Physical copies of Dying Light have seen to an unexpected delay and won’t be available for purchase outside of the United States, the developer has informed.
According to the game’s official Facebook page, the distribution of the discs have been delayed in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australia. It hasn’t been mentioned as to when purchasers can expect the game to arrive in retail stores but it has been stated to be a “short delay.”
The following is the full statement from the developer:
There will be a short delay in the release of physical copies of Dying Light in Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australia. The game will have a global digital release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC of January 27, 2015.
As physical production has a longer lead time than digital there is some delay in the aforementioned territories. We will share information on the availability of physical copies as soon as it is confirmed.
As mentioned, the game’s digital release will proceed as planned and will release worldwide on January 27 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. This puts the recent rumors of the game being delayed again at bay, specifically in France where some retailers were reported to be saying as such.
In a manner of speaking they were indeed correct but the game will still be available in digital format.
